Risk sensemaking, a common feature of everyday life, is the verbal, intersubjective process of noticing, interpreting and explaining actions and events to assess their potential to become risks and dangers that produce extensive harm. It is the primary agentive process (Emirbayer & Mische, 1998) through which intentional choices and actions are made to influence risk, crisis and emergency management, and an important focus in social research (Lupton, 1999; Gephart, Van Maanen, & Oberlechner, 2010, p. 141).
